Happy Mother's Day

The blessings that surround me today are beyond comprehension.  This whole weekend has just been another reminder of how wonderful our God is.  I have had wonderful fellowship, met new people, heard God's word, and today I get to be surrounded by my family.  God is just SO good!  

Today, like everyday, I miss my boys; but today especially because this is the day where traditional moms get to hold their babies and love their kids in person.  I don't have that luxury today.  I do have something even better though.  I know that my boys are living every moment surrounded by God's perfection in Heaven.  I get to live every second knowing that my boys are with our Creator who loves them even more than I do.  My boys don't want for anything.  Isn't that the goal of every mother, traditional or otherwise?  I am blessed to live with the complete confidence that my boys are safe in the arms of Jesus...To that I say PRAISE GOD!!!  

The other blessing I am surrounded with today is that Joshua and Caleb's little brother or sister is with me right now.  God has given me the opportunity to carry another of His children.  I pray that this baby is one I will get to hold in my arms next Mother's Day.  

In just a few minutes I will be headed to my mother's house to spend the day with some of the most amazing women I know.  I get to spend the day with my mother and both of my grandmothers.  What a blessing!  I know so many people don't have that option today.  My mother is such an amazing person and I pray that I get the opportunity to be half the mom she is someday.  She is completely supportive and through all the trials and bumps along the road, she has been by my side.  Both of my grandmothers are also amazing.  They have both set such an example for me and all the girls on both sides of my family.  Mom, Grandma, and Bubby, I wish you a very special Mother's Day this year!  Know that I love you and feel so blessed to have you in my life as an example to follow.  

I want to wish every mother a happy Mother's Day today.  Whether you are holding your children in your arms today or they've grown up and moved away.  Whether you're looking to Heaven to send them your love or with each day's prayers you're asking God for children to stand in awe of;  I pray that you are surrounded by love and blessings this Mother's Day.
